Water Vole trapping at the Medmerry realignment

In March, MWHG volunteers plus the University of Brighton carried out water vole trapping on the Medmerry realignment site.  we were looking to make sure that water voles were still making a home of some of the pre-existing ditches and to check to see if any of the new ditches designed as good water vole habitat had water voles in them.

We did find water voles, and lots of them, but not in the new habitat which was still quite raw and new.
